Community bulb planting !

We’ve got together with Islington Clean Air Parents and organised a community bulb planting session on Saturday 29 October 2022. The bulbs will be yellow and blue to honour Ukraine – come and help us get them planted ready to come up in the spring in 2023 and every year. Meet us at the corner of Barnsbury Park and Liverpool Road 1000 – 1200; bring gloves, trowels and some cake to share.


Beat the Streets is here !

In February 2021, we organised a webinar about active travel and our key speaker was Dr William Bird of Intelligent Health. He told us about Beat the Streets, a game to encourage people to explore their local area, on foot, by bike, on scooters collecting points along the way. Cllr Rowena Champion was there and was listening intently … so intently that, guess what, it’s launching in Islington on 23 March. More info here

Why does a community parklet pose such a threat ?

On 28 June 2020, we posted that the Mayton Street parklet was under threat from the council. The plants have since not only survived but thrived under the careful eyes and green fingers of their creators – who hosted a group of visitors earlier in March 2022. In spite of the council’s recently-launched Greening Together initiative, the parklet is once again under threat. We need to be ready to protect it with common sense and compassion.
